I am an ocean, I am the sea There is a world inside of me Lost in the abyss, drowned in the deep No set of lungs could salvage me Save yourself, save your breath The tide’s too strong, you’ll catch your death So breathe for me, just breathe
There is a Hell, believe me I’ve seen it There is a Heaven, let’s keep it a secret
There is uncharted territory inside of me, mysteries deep and blue. A new Bermuda Triangle is drawn between the base of my spine and each of my lungs. Sunken ships home to strange fish rest against my ribs and whether this screams ‘peril’ or ‘paradise’ just depends on the diver.
But it’s hard to feel like I could ever be anything more than a graveyard, a destroyer of young sailor dreams, my heart anything but an angry kraken looking to drag to the depths those drifting across my seas.
I have an underworld soul, I am cloaked in underbelly skin, I am those corners of the ocean that are more science fiction than the dusty and distant galaxies we’ll never get to know.
There is uncharted territory inside of me, I am mysterious, deep and blue and I can’t help but feel like you are becoming the next naive cartographer, doomed in your search for something to write into your legacy—
The hand on your compass quivers north, It points towards the base of my spine.
